American Idol Judges Angry & Embarrassed Over Nicki Minaj's Shocking Live Show Lateness!?

Oh boy… it sounds like Nicki Minaj just may need to check herself!

After she caused quite the commotion on Wednesday night, by showing up nearly 15 minutes late to American Idol’s first live show, Friday might not be the only pink Nicki will be seeing!

While Ryan Seacrest kept his cool during the show as he joked about Nicki’s lateness — all while judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson awkwardly responded and Mariah Carey looked completely unamused — what happened backstage was a whole other story!

An insider revealed:

“Ryan was the angriest and Nigel [Lythgoe] was mad too. Nicki knew better.”

As for Mimi’s reaction?

The source continued:

“Mariah was just annoyed, she’s really over [Nicki]. They were all just embarrassed that it happened.”

Embarrassed AND shocked! The insider spilled that everyone backstage was really surprised at the stunt she pulled and that it definitely made Nicki look “really bad.”

As much as we love Nicki, gurl is getting paid MILLIONS to be on the show… and that includes being on time, especially for something as important as a live taping!

Hopefully she won’t let something like this happen again, because although we’re sure producers love the dramz she brings in, we’re certain they won’t let frequent tardiness fly!

Mariah, consider yourself out-diva'd! Well, this time around, at least! LOLz!

    Who does this bitch think she is? You're being paid millions to f–king judge a talent show. She's on that black people time.

    People who get paid MUCH less would get fired for showing up late…I think American Idol is a joke, at this point, but if she is going to accept their money she needs to respect filming times.

    Well P Hilton you can suck her Big Butt all ya want but SHE is the reason people can't get away from the 2013 installment of American Idol quick enough. 25% viewership way down and would render a guess that she is responsible for at least 95% of it. Can not wait for fast track 15 yrs down the road to witness how she is no longer around for any type of a career………..

    Re: chuck – She was suppose to leave early enought to get there on time. Everyone else made it there on time.

    If she did that and Howard Stern was on her show she would never hear the end of it. He would be blasting her on air for ever.

    apparently chuck doesn't understand the process of being prepared and getting in ON TIME. LEAVE EARLY
    I wonder why they let this girl be a judge, she has no class or professionalism apparently. Mariah is a great diva and even she show up on time

    Re: chuck – There is this thing, that you are using right now, called the internet, that can actually show you if there is traffic to help you avoid it. And our ancestors actually did this thing called "Anticipating traffic" where they looked at the time, assessed the city they were in, asked someone who knew….did things like that and it actually helped them be someplace on time. Or even early.

    Niki comes late and makes headlines (not the good kind of course, for her or the show - this, the 4 year olds will never get…). How about AI making headlines for actually JUDGING?!

    Re: dddff – Exactly. If you're late, you're late. You didn't allow yourself enough time to get to your place. Your fault. People who blame traffic and other things for their problems are what's wrong with our children today. Take responsibility for your actions.

    She should arrive early. But all that has happened to us. Earlier that we want to leave, something happens to us and we delay. I don't understand why they are so fuckin' exaggerated.

    They're paying her how many millions to do this show? She can't manage to show up on time? WTF?



  13. 13

    I get that she is all crazy with her talk and her look, but her lateness was very unprofessional. She is a decent judge, once you filter out her double talk, but she shouldn't be acting like a full on diva. She ain't all that.

    Re: chuck – She is Not New to LA Traffic and as a Responsible Adult, going to Work, She should of Left Earlier.

    lets face it..she wasnt 13 minutes late was she..unless she was planning to go live on tv on the biggest night of the year for her in a tracksuit and no make up…considering she would wanna wear her over the top clothes, over the top make up and over the top wigs…i think its safe to say she arrived at least an hour and 13 minutes late…i wonder what the hell she was doing



  16. 16

    How about docking her pay $1000 for every minute that she is late? That might give her an incentive to leave well ahead of time to allow for traffic like all the rest of us who live in the LA area do.

    The Producer might love her drama but really it's not helping with the ratings. AT ALL whatever they paid her to judge something she obviously don't know anything about is a big waste of money. NICKI MINAJ NEEDS TO GO. After all whatever she say is not as credible nor important and useful as that of Mariahs, Keith or Randys.

    Re: chuck

    WELL SHE SHOULD HAVE WAKE UP FUCKING EARLY TO HAVE BEAT UP THE TRAFFIC THEN WOULD SHE? BESIDES THIS IS EL LAY NOT FUCKI'N NEW YORK. BITCH!!

    Actually, isn't that around the time Weezy started having his seizures? Nicki owes her career to Lil Wayne. She was probably having a moment!

    Fire her and fill in with people who have something relevant to say

    Re: chuck – Leave earlier with traffic in mind? The others got there on time. Anyway, late happens; it's not a federal offense…but I'll bet she doesn't do itagain. I really like her overall. She's open, fresh, candid and charming, and the camera loves her.

    I would disagree that Mariah Carey was "out diva'd". Disrespected, yes. Out diva'd? No. A diva is many things but tardy for the party is not one of them. You miss your cue and someone else will step in and fill the spot light. As another commenter mentioned, she was probably an hour and 13 minutes late. If there was the possibility of a conflict in her schedule it would have been realized well in advance and the show would have been organized in a way to remedy this short coming. How can they expect anyone to care to tune in if they can't get the judges to care to show up on time? Minaj will never go further in her career with this mindset and this will be her last collaboration with the network. A diva knows her mark, and when she has to hit it. In a word, a diva is professional.

    Nicki Minaj sucks. Her music sucks, her personality sucks and her style sucks. She has a pisspoor attitude and for some reason continues with this "diva-like" antics when she has in NO WAY earned a highly respectful position in the music industry. She doesn't stick to her roots, so her "rapping" sucks, her poppy songs are catchy but absolutely awful, she's ugly and thinks she can get away with anything because she has so much money. What a nasty way to look at life and go about things. Her attitude is basically "I don't give a shit because I'm still richer than you." A childish and pathetic way to be. No doubt karma will bite this bitch in the ass and she's going to be one of those bankrupt, washed-up celebrities we see on VH1 reality TV 10 years from now.

    Nicki is definitely not an asset to the Idol show . We've been watching for 12 seasons and this year although I want to watch it's like a nail in my foot…she needs to go , her comments are not appropriate at all …she's giving advice !!!…good Lord get rid of that girl , if anyone needs advice she does and lots of it. She's nothing to write home about, she looks awful and what comes out of her mouth is disgusting…the judges are embarrassed you say…unbelievable to say the least…this girl has got to go !!!!!!

    Nicki ruins the show her attitude is awful and the worse singer out there can still sing better than Nicki. Maybe she will be late again and the judges will ask her to leave the show. She sucks

    I don't like Nickky ,……she is an idiot ….rude person…..she doesn't have
    good maners …she doesn't treat people nicely…. they should get
    another judge



  27. 27

    WHAT? MULTI PLATINUM SELLING, MULTI GRAMMY WINNING DIVA MARIAH SHOWS UP ON TIME ,WHILE THE FLOP ASS RAPPER IS LATE ? THIS IS REALLY ANNOYING, WHO THE HELL SHE THINKS SHE IS ? SHE GETS BIG MONEY FOR THAT "JOB", SO ITS SO DISRESPECTFUL TO OTHER JUDGES AND VIEWERS

    If Mariah(I love you Mariah!!!!!) …the queen diva of being a little not on tim can BE ON TIME then Nicki can get her behind to Idol in time as well. She could have came on with something on better than a black hoodie. If I got paid 12 million dollars for a season I'd be 12 hours early lol #truth

    How is she missing up the show? The show is suppose to be about talent not the judges..Nicki is

    a selling artist (google it) and she sits in the front row at a fashion show with Anna Wintour!

    People are hating on her because she's black and she don't take any b-s from anyone!

    Poor taste 'chosen one' to call out the race card when people have legitimate criticism about Nicki.

    I hope you do not bring nicki back next season. I don't know what you call her music. Can t stand it either. Ever time she opens her mouth she whines. Mariah, Keith and randy are wonderful.
